Welcome the Yucata Player Series (YPS), an assortment of ongoing board game tournaments and leagues played using the play-by-web site, Yucata.de. If you are new to YPS, you might want to subscribe to this geeklist:

Yucata Players Series, Season 3 - Online Tournaments at Yucata.de

********************************************************

This is YPS Event 3.12M: 3p Yspahan



Sign-up Information

a) Sign-ups: Open through about December 1, give or take a few days, and the tournament will begin immediately at that time. To enter the event simply post to this thread with your yucata username (if different from your BGG username) and subscribe to this thread to receive updates about the tournament as it progresses.

b) Format: This will be a round robin (all-play-all) tournament of 3-player games with three distinct rounds. The exact format will depend on the number of entrants, and will be clarified when the field is set and the tournament begins. Generally speaking, in the first round of the tournament you will play a number of 3p games, in batches of 3-5 games at a time, against a wide variety of players, and you will earn one point for each opponent you defeat. There may be as many as three distinct rounds of the tournament, with fewer players qualifying for each phase. Altogether, the tournament might take as long as 4-6 months to conclude.

Variant: Original (Veto is Allowed)
************************************************************

Player Expectations - Please Read

Everyone is absolutely welcome to play! Please do keep in mind that these tournaments are run primarily by the players and communication is important to keep the event from stalling out. I ask all players to do the following:

a) Make moves at least (approximately) daily in general. If you are only on yucata five days a week, or will take one vacation for a week, that is totally fine.

b) Create and accept invitations and update the tournament spreadsheet with results in a punctual manner.

c) Read all messages posted to this thread and respond to the TO when necessary. Please make sure you subscribe to the event thread to keep abreast of tournament news.

d) Report any problems/issues promptly to the TO directly or this thread. These might include a mistake in your yucata name, a need to be away from yucata for a period, another player who is not making moves, a yucata glitch affecting your game, an incorrect invitation, etc.

Please post here with questions/comments/feedback, and please sign up if you like! Also please thumb this thread to help publicize.

Doron, there are two empty pods (pods D and E) at the bottom of the spreadsheet. Not a big deal, of course.

What can we do about a player who is holding up so many games. User Saraxsr is not making moves and holding up games

One of the perils of on-line, play-by-web gaming is that you have no visibility as to what is going on at the other end of the big network. You never know when someone has had a health issue, family emergency, vacation, and/or if their computer burst into flames.

Saraxsr appears to have played a lot of games at yucata over a few years, so he is not a first-time user. I would venture to bet that he has some issue keeping him away from the keyboard and should be back soon.
